Make Your Own Camping Food

So, if you’re beginning to live a more preparedness lifestyle, you’re probably looking to expand on your alternative cooking techniques and ideas for grid-down situations. These could be days without power after a local or natural disaster or even something more long-term.

There is also a bonus rocket stove section to learn to make your own rocket stove to have in the wilderness (or even in your own backyard!). We absolutely love our Premier Rocket Stove – read the review here, which includes instructions on making your own.
